How It Works

WhizRider is extremely easy to use and install. By combining the harness system into a vest, the portable car seat takes less than 20 seconds to install: 10 seconds to put it on and another 10 seconds to secure your child within the vehicle. As a result, you can get situated quickly and easily, which is especially important when using public transportation, such as a cab or rideshare service. Your kids will also love the ability to easily secure themselves when riding with family or friends.

The WhizRider harness system anchors the seat belt of the car into optimal position on the shoulder and the lap to prevent serious injury. The upper clip holds the shoulder belt down and in the proper place to reduce the risk of injury to the neck or face. The leg loops, inspired by rock climbing gear, prevent the child from moving out of the seat and sliding underneath the lap belt, preventing submarining, which is a common issue with booster seats. This eliminates the risk of injury to the abdominal organs and genitals.

Instructions

  1. Place vest on child. Close chest and leg loop strap buckles.
  2. Adjust size of harness using adjustable straps.
  3. Buckle vehicle seat belt.
  4. Insert vehicle lap belt completely into both lap belt path guides, then pull vehicle lap belt snug.
  5. Insert vehicle shoulder belt completely into the shoulder belt path guide, then pull vehicle shoulder belt snug.

WhizRider comes packed in a bag that is about the size of a medium to-go coffee. It fits in a jacket pocket, a handbag, or child sport’s bag, and easily fits in carry-on luggage.

How easy is it to clean?
The WhizRider vest is made of a water repellent material for easy cleaning. Wash with a wet cloth and mild soap. Do not use fabric softener and do not machine wash. Air dry. Do not tumble dry.

Where can I use WhizRider?
WhizRider was designed and tested based on the U.S. federal regulation standards that are among the highest in the world. These regulations include the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 213 and FMVSS 302 for Flammability of Interior Materials.

What about countries outside USA?
Many countries outside the USA accept the U.S. standard, have exceptional cases or do not have child safety requirements, like: In Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam etc) - In South Asia (India, Sri Lanka etc) - In Latin America (Argentia, Chile, Columbia, Equador, Mexico, Peru etc) - In European countries with exceptional cases for the use of Taxis (Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherland, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom*) *including the use of uber

Do I need to replace WhizRider after an accident?
We sincerely hope that you and your child never experience a crash. WhizRider is comprised of high quality components that absorb some of the forces of a crash when in use. Such forces can deform parts of the restraint and may not be detectable by visual inspection. As a result, the child restraint must be replaced after a crash.

Has WhizRider been properly tested?
Yes, each component of WhizRider has been designed, crash tested, and re-tested to meet the highest U.S. Federal Safety Standards, regulated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). WhizRider surpasses the requirements of the U.S. Federal Safety Standards. These include the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 213 for Child Restraint Systems and FMVSS 302 for Flammability of Interior Materials.

Can we see your crash test results?
Yes, please go to our page where you can see detailed information on the standards we test against, the design and workings of WhizRider as well as an actual crash test video. Click here.

What safety standards does the WhizRider meet?
WhizRider meets and exceeds the requirements of the US Federal Regulation Standard FMVSS 213 for Child Restraint Systems and FMVSS 302 for Flammability of Interior Materials. We have continuously evaluated every component of WhizRider to ensure it is best-in-class and meets all safety, sustainability and ethical standards. Our suppliers are all bluesign® or OEKO-TEX® certified, and all components of WhizRider are produced with toxin-free substances.

Why not ECE R44 (Europe) but FMVSS 213 (USA)?
Child Restraint regulation standards like FMVSS 213 and ECE R44 have only minor differences like the labeling and language requirements. The real difference is that FMVSS 213 is a performance-oriented and ECE R44 is a design-oriented standard. ECE R44 as a design-oriented standard does not describe a harness-style restraint system. Also when WhizRider fulfills all European and U.S. crash test requirements and receives excellent results, we can’t get the ECE certification.

Is WhizRider safer than a regular booster seat?
A major problem of standard booster seats is submarining. This is where the child can slide underneath the lap belt. WhizRider’s unique leg loops prevents submarining and reduce the risk of injuries of the inner abdominal organs. In addition, the make and position of the shoulder clip holds the shoulder belt in the correct position even if the child is moving around in the seat or falls asleep and prevents the belt from sliding off the shoulder or legs and causing injury.

Is WhizRider made responsibly?
Yes. We evaluate every component of WhizRider to ensure it is best-in-class quality and meets all safety, sustainability and ethical standards. WhizRider is certified as carbon neutral manufacturer and all CO2 emissions resulting from production, logistics and disposal of our product are offset by supporting climate projects around the world. All our materials are whenever possible bluesign® or OEKO-TEX® certified to make sure that our components do not contain any harmful substances.

What about chemical components?
Every component we are using during production of WhizRider is free of any harmful substances. We do so by strictly working with suppliers that understand the importance of non-use of harmful substances. All of our components are made, whenever possible, using Bluesign certified chemicals only. Further, we test every component on chemical ingredients using European and US standards and regulations working with globally leading laboratories. Learn more: www.bluesign.com

Do you use Fluorocarbons in your coating?
If there is an ecologically more responsible alternative we go for it. Most water repellent coatings are made using Fluorocarbons. These are polyfluorinated or perfluorinated compounds (PFC or PFOS). They were invented in the 1960s and have been used since then for a variety of applications. It does not occur in nature, but it has now been found in breast milk, the blood of polar bears and glaciers on every continent of the planet. The Ware Repellent effect of WhizRider is completely PFC Free.

Are your production, distribution and disposal processes climate/CO2 neutral?
Even when choosing the most eco friendly materials, during production there is still energy used which causes emission of CO2 which again effects our climate. We want to keep our environmental footprint as small as possible. Therefore, we compensate all emissions resulting from production, distribution and disposal of WhizRider by supporting selected climate projects. Emissions are calculated based on scientific methods by our partner ClimatePartner. Learn more: www.climatepartner.com
